What does ‘like-for-like’ mean when choosing an accident loan car provider?

July 25, 2019

Have you ever had to settle for something less than what you wanted or needed? At Right2Drive, you don’t have to worry about settling for less.  We place importance on providing our customers, who are not at-fault in an accident involving more than one car, with an accident loan car similar to their own.

Many people own and drive a specific type of vehicle that matches their lifestyle. Some people need a small car to run about the city, whilst others may require a family sized SUV with baby seats for the kids or a commercial van for work.

If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being involved in a car accident it can be extremely frustrating and disruptive particularly if the car accident wasn’t even your fault. Not only may you face the inconvenience of organising repairs for your car, but you may need to deal with the challenges of a small loan car that doesn’t fit the kids or tools or worse still, left with no car at all.

At Right2Drive, we understand that there are reasons why people drive particular types of cars and we are well aware of the inconvenience caused by a car accident.  This is why we aim to minimise the inconvenience for our customers, who are not at-fault in an accident involving more than one car, by providing them with an accident loan car similar to their own car. This means that our customers can continue to carry on with life until their damaged car is repaired or replaced.


What’s the difference between Right2Drive and some car rental companies?


A similar accident loan car

Right2Drive will provide customers (who qualify for an accident loan car) with an accident loan car similar to their own car. This is unlike some other rental companies which may only provide a small or unsuitable car.  


No upfront costs

If you’re involved in a not at-fault car accident Right2Drive will recover the rental costs from the at-fault party’s insurance company on your behalf. No upfront costs required. This is unlike some rental car companies which may require a bond or for you to pay the rental car costs upfront.


We deliver the car to you

Right2Drive will deliver the accident loan car to you. We can meet you at the repairer or your home so you can drop-off your car for repairs and drive away in our accident loan car – simple. This is unlike some rental car companies which may need you to make your own way to their branch.


Zero insurance excess

We provide a zero-insurance excess which gives our customers peace of mind while driving our cars. The zero-insurance excess means that if you have an accident in one of our accident loan cars, provided you have abided by our terms and conditions, you won’t be stung with a high excess payment which may occur when renting a car from other companies.


Apply for an Accident Loan Car

So if you have found yourself in a car accident involving more than one car and you are not at-fault, remember to apply for an accident loan car with Right2Drive.





Things you should know: Applications for an accident loan car are subject to approval.  You will not be required to pay for the rental costs provided you assist us in recovering the costs from the at-fault party and act in accordance to our Terms and Conditions. Your assistance in recovering rental costs may include you providing documents, giving witness statements, and in some cases, appear in court in proceedings Right2Drive commences in your name. Terms and conditions apply and are available at www.right2Drive.com.au.
